BGL updates integration with MYOB GreatSoft

By BGL Update, CAS 360, Simple Fund 360, Simple Invest 360No Comments

BGL is proud to announce the release of its enhanced integration with leading business management platform MYOB GreatSoft practice management.

“We are excited to roll out our new and improved two-way practice management integration with GreatSoft,” said BGL’s Managing Director Ron Lesh. “This integration streamlines the management of company, SMSF, trust, and individual client and contact data across four apps in a single database. This eliminates the need for manual and duplicated data entry, freeing up valuable time and resources for clients.

Valantis Vais, Head of Product – Enterprise for MYOB, said, “Accounting Practices are struggling with an industry-wide shortage of Accountants, so reducing the amount of precious time wasted keeping data in sync between BGL’s suite of products and MYOB GreatSoft with a seamless 2-way workflow will help reduce pressure on the existing teams. Plus, this integration demonstrates our commitment to creating an Open Business Management Platform for Accountants.”

The new and improved two-way BGL Practice Management Integration (Version 2) connects MYOB’s GreatSoft practice management software with the BGL Suite, which includes company, trust and AML management software, CAS 360, SMSF administration software, Simple Fund 360 and accounting, investment and tax software, Simple Invest 360.

“The integration features client and contact level synchronisation, prompts to review a client/contact before syncing to an app and provides notifications for duplicate clients/contacts,” continued Lesh. “It also includes the ability to add clients/contacts in bulk, view client/contact relationships and change history. All clients/contacts can be searched and filtered in the Client List screen”. 

“So, if a client’s details change in the BGL Suite (CAS 360, Simple Fund 360 and Simple Invest 360), this change is automatically updated in GreatSoft,” added Lesh. “Also, when client or contact details change in any app, our company compliance software, CAS 360, will prompt clients to prepare all the relevant ASIC compliance documents.” 

BGL plans to extend this integration to other practice management partners.

BGL’s free and open API is used extensively across the industry with 350+ data feed and integration partners in the BGL Ecosystem, delivering a holistic experience to BGL clients.

BGL releases world first Annual Tax Statement automation

BGL Corporate Solutions has announced the release of Annual Tax Statement automation using BGL SmartDocs in Simple Fund 360 and Simple Invest 360.

BGL SmartDocs is a multi-award-winning, AI-powered paper-to-data solution fully integrated with BGL’s SMSF administration and investment management software, Simple Fund 360 and Simple Invest 360.

“This release is a huge achievement by our Big Data, Simple Fund 360 and Simple Invest 360 Product Teams and I’m extremely proud of everyone involved,” said Ron Lesh, BGL’s Managing Director. “This amazing new feature will free up valuable time for our Simple Fund 360 and Simple Invest 360 clients by eliminating the need for manual data input or the hassle of deciphering tax statements from Managed Funds, ETFs and Trusts.”

“BGL clients can simply upload or email Annual Tax Statements (image or PDF files) directly to their Simple Fund 360 or Simple Invest 360 software,” continued Lesh. “The built-in BGL SmartDocs feature will read the statement, extract the data and calculate the distribution tax components pre-filling the relevant fields in Simple Fund 360 or Simple Invest 360. The BGL SmartDocs feature displays the statement alongside the calculations providing a simple reconciliation process.”

Jeevan Tokhi, Head of Simple Fund 360 at BGL, said, “BGL continues to innovate and remove manual data entry for clients. In 2019, we released a tool that automated tax data processing by calculating the amount of each tax component and applying this to distributions received during the year. We extended in 2021 by automatically creating year-end accrual transactions and warnings in our built-in workpapers. Now, we have the incredible feature of extracting the tax components from the Annual Tax Statement PDF. This release is yet another step forward in the evolution of our zero-touch technology.”

BGL SmartDocs is currently reading two million pages per month and loading the extracted data into Simple Fund 360 and Simple Invest 360.

BGL releases Division 7A loan calculator in Simple Invest 360

BGL Corporate Solutions (BGL), Australia’s leading provider of company compliance, self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF), investment management and AI powered paper-to-data solutions, is proud to announce the release of a Division 7A loan calculator and manager feature in its accounting, investment and tax software, Simple Invest 360.

“We’re thrilled to introduce the Division 7A loan manager in Simple Invest 360,” said Ron Lesh, BGL’s Managing Director. “This feature equips BGL clients with cutting-edge tools to help them tackle the complexities of Division 7A loans, a fundamental component of contemporary accounting management that affects trusts and companies.”

Andrew Paszko, Simple Invest 360 Product Manager at BGL, said: “The Division 7A feature is the result of feedback from clients on the challenges faced by businesses dealing with Division 7A loans. This feature will not only calculate the minimum repayments and interest payments but will then post the journals for these payments to the ledger. These transactions can be posted for both companies as the lender as well as a trust or shareholders as the borrower.”

“Our Division 7A feature goes beyond traditional financial management software,” added Lesh. “With its integrated capabilities, users can easily reconcile ledger balances, ensuring financial accuracy and compliance. But what truly sets this feature apart is its seamless integration with dividend payments. We understand the common practice of offsetting minimum repayments, and our feature is designed to accommodate this efficiently.”

The Division 7A feature introduces a global entity view to Simple Invest 360, providing a comprehensive overview of Division 7A balances across entities and simplifying monitoring processes. Additionally, the feature offers clear differentiation between secured and unsecured loans, catering for varying loan terms. The intuitive user interface allows easy access to loan worksheets, ledger balances and documents linked to loans, streamlining the process of posting journals for dividends and interest and ensuring a cohesive and integrated workflow.
